    Great!
    Now the Obama Regime is telling people what company names are “Government Approved” and if you don’t follow those rules, they will set out to destroy your private business.
    I expect the White House May Day Party was one big celebration of our Great Leader!
    Lots of red uniforms too!

    Sometimes we need to draw a line… at least for decency’s sake. The “n” word originally referred to Negro, a descriptive term for skin color that was considered OK during my childhood. Or how about what it would sound like to say “blackskins”, …or “whiteskins”… I feel there is a strong case for changing the name of the team.

    Aren’t those more like job titles, like “steelers” or “boilermakers”?

    I recall the Atlanta Braves causing controversy in 1990s with the “Tomahawk Chop” that was deemed offensive.

    I was surprised the Patent office removed trademark protection on a trademark that has been issued for a long time. I guess all you have to do is get a crowd together and bad mouth a trademark to get it revoked.

    The government can not force anything here. Only the truly profit making private business enterprise of the NFL can do this, one way or the other. This is not a legitimate anti president Obama thing, so get over it you anti American profit making American business ultra conservatives!!

    ^^^ lol
    Also, I’m VERY offended by the Fighting Irish name with a little leprechaun as their mascot!!!!!!!!
    I want big mommy government and the Copyright Office to get involved ASAP!
    This and the Redskins name is why we pay our politicians to tackle the most pressing issues facing our country!

    Seeing as it’s Friday #5: Q: What do you call an Englishman in the knockout stages of the World Cup? A: A Referee.

    Actually, there is significant evidence that “redskin” is a word of native american origin.

    @TripleAxel

    “a word of native american origin”

    You keep saying that with out any backup except what is inside you mind.
    Ever lived with Native Americans? In their homes with elders and children?
    No?
    That the “black white man” was despised by “white men” was an oddity not well understood at the time.
    The English version of the history of a people they did not consider worth studying is quite the blow against their being the “civilized” people.
    You are immersed in ignorance, and although ignorance is totally a temporary illness the patient needs to make a small effort for the cure to happen.

    @Stipple

    In the other post to which you presumably refer I include a link to an article discussing the issue. If you are as interested avoiding ignorance as you say I invite you to read it for yourself:

    You obviously have not read your own link (or understood it) as it does not say what you think it does.

    “Now its [sic] just another word”?

    You might want to ask a Native American about that.

    Mr. Hawthorne is entitled to his opinion, but hundreds of thousands of his fellow Indians disagree with him — vehemently.
